What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fridley

The Minnesota Department of Health, Health Regulation Division, licenses all assisted living facilities in Fridley and the rest of Minnesota. This department enforces minimum operating standards related to building and security requirements, care planning, staffing and recreation. It monitors compliance through regular inspections and a yearly licensing process.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fridley

 

  • Seniors in Fridley pay state income taxes on all types of retirement income, including their Social Security benefits. However, Minnesota has credits and deductions to reduce the tax burden on qualified individuals, leaving more money in the bank for assisted living expenses. In addition to this, the state exempts food and prescription and nonprescription medications from its relatively high sales tax.

 

  • Mercy Hospital – Unity Campus sits in Fridley proper and provides a variety of inpatient and outpatient services, such as heart and vascular care, geriatric psychiatry, spine care and surgical services. It also operates several wellness programs to help local seniors preserve motor functioning and strength.

 

  • Out of Minnesota’s 87 surveyed counties, Fridley’s Anoka County ranks 23rd for overall health. In this community, 56% of Medicare beneficiaries get the annual flu shot, helping to reduce the transmission of seasonal illnesses in assisted living communities, and relatively clean air and water support residents’ comfort and health.

 

  • On the AARP Livability Index, Fridley scores 62, which surpasses the national norm of 48 points and indicates a favorable environment for seniors. It ranks in the top half of U.S. communities for features such as its reliable public transportation system, which includes ADA-accessible stations and vehicles, and its preventable hospitalization rate of 34.8 comes in below the national norm of 38.2, indicating access to effective outpatient care.

 

  • Fridley’s crime rate ranks among the highest in the nation at 47.38 incidents per 1,000 people. This puts it in the bottom 3% of U.S. communities and bottom 1% of Minnesota cities for safety, and its combined violent and property crime rate surpasses typical rates in other cities with similar population sizes. Even so, northside neighborhoods, such as Fridley Northeast and Fridley Northwest, as well as the City Center neighborhood, have comparatively low crime rates and may be more desirable for those seeking local assisted living services.
